This Mongghul bog (shaman performance) was held in Sughuangghuali Village, Danma Town, Huzhu Mongghul (Tu) Autonomous County, Haidong Region, Qinghai Province, PR. China on the eighteenth day of the third lunar month yearly. In 1998, the village had 760 residents, all of whom were Mongghul. Some said their ancestors were Mongols. The bog in this village were called 'Warishida Bog'. 'Warishida' refers to a place name in the village. The event is also called 'Dige bog' (Egg bog) because those who participate bring boiled eggs and knock their boiled eggs against other people's eggs. The cracked egg belongs to the person whose egg did not crack.

In the past the main bog performers were from Tanzi Swine bog, in Tanzi Mongghul Village; Smeen bog, in Smeen Mongghul Village; Qaghuali bog, in Qaghuali Mongghul Village, in Dongshan Township; Xanjang bog, in Xanjang Village, Danma Town; Jangwarima Dog–Head bog, in Jangwarima Village, Weiyuan Town; Yomajaa bog, in Yomajaa Village, Donggou Township and Shuangshu bog, in Shuangshu Township in the Huzhu area.

In 2009, Mongghul still observed this ritual.

This bog was filmed by Zhu Yongzhong on the eighteenth day of the third lunar month 2000 in Sughuangghuali Village. Jugui and Limusishiden then made a VCD of the video materials in 20 December 2000 at their home in Xining.
